12 oz can poured into a pint glass.
A: Bubbly, mostly white head. A hazy, light copper and orange hue. Carbonation is everywhere - in the head and small chains of active bubbles traveling up the glass and suspended in the beer. Some sediment floating in the beer as well.
S: Floral, orange citrus hops, biscuits, and strong pine resin.
T: Sweet, caramel, and malty biscuits up front. Sting of grapefruit and dank, earthy bitterness on the end.
M: Juicy mouthfeel that is more sweet at first, but bitterness clings on the tongue at the finish. Nice warming sensation on the back of the throat.
O: An easy drinking IPA that is juicy, slightly refreshing, but full of powerful flavors and aromas. A handsome looking beer from start to finish. One of my all time favorites.

This beer is about the only reason I would go back to Florida...
I know the true characteristic of a beer is realized after it has been decanted but Jai Alai is great straight out of the can. Refreshing and well balanced hop profile with a clean crisp finish. Does not linger on the tongue and only leaves you wanting to go back for another sip. Even when poured the beer exhibits a beautiful color and wonderful citrus (orange peel) aroma. A great tight head that lingers on the edge of the class tells me that someone has taken their time to get it right.
